In this day and age of technology, we often forget how nice it is to just receive something in the mail, snail mail not email! Do a good deed and send someone a card, a handmade card or note card would be even better! Tell someone unexpected that you were thinking about them, send a card to an old teacher and let them know how they made a difference, or a past boss just to tell him he was a good boss. Whomever it is that receives your little act of kindness will be thrilled for sure and you get to walk around all day with a smile knowing you made someones day! Win Win!

Why don't people take time to celebrate?? You don't have to win an award or get a promotion... why not celebrate organizing your house, or doing a job well done, or celebrate the kids finishing a school project, or even just celebrate another wonderful Thursday lived well! So many people finish a project and quickly move on to the next one without ever taking the time to celebrate. Take time to celebrate, the big and little things and live An Inspired Life!
It has been pretty rainy here in Upstate NY where I live so why not make the most of it and dance in the rain! Channel that inner child that used to love to run around in the rain and splash in the puddles or grab your lover and have a romantic slow dance in the rain. Nothing feels better than turning a rainy dreary day into an uplifting experience that can make you feel young again!

There is nothing more peaceful than sitting in a field of dandelions and talking to a horse! If you don't have a horse, or even a field available, talk to you dog, cat, turtle, fish or even your pet hamster. Take your animal to a nice serene setting and have a nice long chat. Animals are awesome listeners, non-judgemental and don't offer biased opinions. You will not believe how relaxed you can feel after chatting with your pet and your pet will love the attention as well!

As an epicurean, I find so much joy and passion in food! Take yourself to a fancy restaurant that you have never been to and try a new dish! Really taste the food, distinguish the flavors, try to identify the spices or herbs, feel the different textures and contemplate how the food makes you feel. A good quality meal can excite your senses and can be quite passionate! If your on a tight budget, make a fancy meal at home. There are billions of wonderful recipes online that you can experiment with... and you just might discover a new passion!
There is nothing more romantic than star gazing! If you don't have a large yard, grab a blanket and drive to a field. Lay in the field with someone special and look up at the stars. It is amazing to just lay there and see what seems like the entire universe shining down upon you. Watching the stars dance while random clouds haze the moonlight. Even if you go alone, there is nothing more amazing than watching a show that the universe puts on!

Doors just open for me!!! Next time you walk into a building with automatic doors, throw your arms up and out and state loudly "OPEN!" Then tell yourself, "doors are always opening up for me!" It's a great positive affirmation, but it's also fun to harness the powerful feeling of being able to open doors with a mere wave of the hands! Additionally, if you have really little kids, they think you are AMAZING because you have magical powers to make doors open!
Ok.... so this is one of my favorite things to do! Ride the shopping cart in the grocery store and in the parking lot! My kids don't even find it embarrassing anymore, I guess they have become used to it! (lol) You might think you would get weird looks, but more often than not, people just smile or giggle... you have to try it... it's freeing and FUN!

How do you feel today? Today... DRESS THAT WAY! Are you feeling sexy or mischievous, sporty and adventurous, maybe even cozy and cute? No matter which way you feel today... really do it up and dress the way you feel! If your feeling sexy, throw on that sexy dress that turns heads, or if you are feeling warm and cozy, maybe your favorite jeans and sweater. Let your appearance tell everyone how you are feeling today!

With your finger.... trace the words " I LOVE YOU " on somoenes back or arm. Tell that special someone that you love them and if you do it soft enough you can give them goosebumps too! If you don't have a special someone or a child, do it to your pet! Even your dog, cat, horse or turtle will appreciate the gesture of love!

Sometimes you just need to take a day off! Call the kids out of school, call your boss and spend the entire day hanging with your kids, loved ones, friends or just alone taking a long drive! Whatever you decide to do.... enjoy the day! I myself am spending the day in the house watching tv with the kids... its relaxing but the best part is snuggling on the couch with the kids!

It's a beautiful Saturday... go out and pick yourself some flowers. If there are none to be picked, then pick them at your local shoppe. Let a big bouqet of flowers in your bedroom remind you how beautiful you are! While you are at it... bring some to a friend, daughter, mother, husband or boyfriend!

Draw the blinds and lock the door... and walk around the house naked! Be in touch with your true nature, your original self. If you haven't walked around the house naked, you will be surprised how freeing it feels! Stay naked for a while, make a call, do some housework, meditate or just relax on the couch, but feel beautiful and free for a little while!

Have an indoor picnic! It can be a very romantic interlude that your sweetie will never expect, lay a blanket in the living room and serve dinner right on the floor! Or, have a fun filled imaginary summer day on the living room floor with the kids and some fun finger foods! Imagine how cool they will think you are! Indoor picnics for no reason are the bomb!
